MERCEDES BENZ SL 107 Another Transmission Shift Question - Modulator

89 560SL 134K Regardless of how I accelerate easy or WOT transmission will not shift to 3rd or 4th until I let off of the throttle quite a bit. I can ease up to any RPM and hold steady - no shift until I let off. I can accelerate hard and ease up - still no shift. Only shifts when I completely back off the throttle. Is this a modulator symptom Transmission has been serviced recently and fluid level is fine.

Same procedure is used for replacing

MERCEDES BENZ 190 W201 sunroof problems

Hi all I drive a mercedes 190e 2.6 1989 model i think its a sport line as its got all the works and a full cozzy kit. The problem that I have is that the sunroof has stopped working. When you push the sunroof button backward and forwards up and down there is no movement but you can hear the motor going. Also you can open it manually from the boot. Can any one help me as its summer time now. Cheers[(]

If you can wind it all the way open and closed again from the boot then the cable is OK. It sounds like the cable needs some lubricating. If you open the roof about half way you can pull the lining down. It his held up by four plastic pressure clips along the front. Pull them down and then slide the lining out forwards. Spray some lubricant on the inner cable or grease it then wind it back and forward

MERCEDES BENZ 190 W201 HELP Electrical Issue

My wifes faithful 190E is sucking the life out of the battery. New 800 CCA battery dead in less than two hours. Here are the symptoms 1. After the battery is freshly charged the static draw (ECM Memory is .001 amp) 2. Wife drives the car to the local store (5 minute drive time) 30 minutes later the car will not start without a jump. 3. I have pulled each fuse to see if there is a high amp draw and

Radio on Voltage 13.3 resting during mystery load Voltage 9.7 and dropping 20 plus amp draw (my meter red lines a 20 amps) There are two relays in the back of the fuse box. One is five pin and the other is six pin. The fuse box cover says they control everything from cooling fans to power windows. I have discovered that one of the pins one the first relay was blued from heat. Further reading on benz-World

MERCEDES BENZ 123 123 Just got a 1983 300DT and have some questions

Hi guys I just got a 1983 300D turbo for 500. Odometer shows 301500 miles and is working. The car had been sitting for 3 years. It was smoking more at first but then it cleared up on my way home since I put some fresh fuel in it. I will post a video as soon as I get a chance with my blow by and stuff (it seems normal to me). It seems to have good power (I only ran it from where I bought it to home

It is nice and clean now. I will post pictures. 3. I did the valve adjustment - They were ALL tight Only 2 exhaust

MERCEDES BENZ 190 W201 87 2.6 not shifting up to 4th gear.

Hey guys when I got back from vacation about 3 months ago by car would hesitate to shift up to 4th gear. Ive had my baby for almost 3 years and have had NO transmission problems. It would hesitate in the way that after 3rd gear the revs would rise and it would feel as if Im not in gear at all and THEN fall into 4th gear. After driving it for a couple more weeks the 4th gear would not catch at all.

at the time. Id make the same decision if I had to do it again. Turns out my limit is rebuilding an automatic transmission how about that. On the west coast you should contact Sun Valley. Theyre reasonable on the cost and will install it cheaply. The shop I used is in NJ its called Trans Specialties. Either shop should do this including install for under 2K. Both of these shops do a lot of mercedes

Just blowing smoke.... The reported problem is that 4th gear isnt engaging and the transmission is going into neutral instead. This means the K2 clutch isnt engaged. If it was a bowden cable or modulator there would be other symptoms. A K2 accumulator problem might account for his earlier flaring symptom and is an easy thing to check but even a broken accumulator spring would be an unlikely reason

Two days ago I floored the gas pedal and accelerated through a tunnel then as I started to slow I felt my car was lumpy like miss firing the power was down but I got home.

MERCEDES BENZ SLK R170 SLK 32 AMG Supercharger pulley

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I need some advice from you guys... I drive a SLK 32 AMG 2002 of which the supercharger pulleyclutch has broken a little plate which forms part of the assembly. It damaged the intercooler pipe and made a nasty dent in the bonnet. Replacing the pulleyclutch from mercedes benz South Africa is freaky expensive and absolutely

Now this is the kind of advice I was hoping for Firstly I am not changing the crank pulley so all the other pulleys should still be turning at exactly the same revs. Only the supercharger pulley is smaller therefore only the supercharger will be spinning faster which is what I want. I dont have a choice regarding which pulley I want to change. My supercharger pulleyclutch is broken and must be replaced

MERCEDES BENZ 124 124 Water Pump Help E320

I have to replace the water pump on my 1994 E320 and have done many searches here to see if someone put out a step by step guide on what needs to be taken off first. I know that it is in the repair manual but I do not have time to order it due to the fact that I need this car to go to work. So anyone that can point me in the right direction of either a posting or a website I would greatly appreciate it.

MERCEDES BENZ SL 107 mb v12 bi turbo m275

i know this is little bit of topic here but i will in a few weeks have three V12 bi-turbo engines with 5 speed auto from 2004 in my garage and the engines are fully complete with everything nothing is missing. get back with more info.....think i would put one in my 107 after all......

John thats good info about the shift delay but that can be done relatively easily on the SM4. The problem I can see is that IF the factory use 2x 6 cyl ECUs (much like m120 used 2xm104 units) then the setup is complicated. Also the CANbus is going to be a problem for a whole host of other issues like instrumentation abs yaw control etc - which are all tied into the harness. probably going to need a

MERCEDES BENZ 190 W201 overheating in traffic

I am having some overheating issues with my 1984 190e 2.3. During normal driving conditions my temp is at 80 degrees C. When i am stopped the engine temp begins to rise almost to 120C. I have done some searching and found some possible culprits. 1.) Thermostat-I am not sure if this is the culprit bc I have an all aluminum thermostat housing. If i am not mistaken..wasnt it plastic If so then the thermostat

Heres a recap of what we might know about your situation. 1) The thermostat probably wasnt an issue. Thermostats can be tested in a pot of hot water with a kitchen thermometer monitoring the temp and seeing when the device opens. 2) Even with a working thermostat when the car is stopped if the radiator cant dump enough heat then the aux fan needs to help out otherwise the coolant temp will continue

MERCEDES BENZ 124 124 Considering purchasing a 400E - advise please

Hello all I have never owned a mercedes before always been a BMW guy (specifically V8V12 BMWs preferablly with manual gearbox). Regardless I am currently looking at a cheap 400E as a DD. Car seems pretty solid aside from a few niggling problems. Looking for input I dont mind little weekend projects but I really dont want this to end up as a project car. Car has 150k miles engine pulls extremely hard

too like play in the throttle pedal. I tried adjusting the cable at the rear of the engine but that didnt help at all. The second mechanical part also didnt have any play. Whats the deal with that Does this thing have an electric TB The car is EXTREMELY cheap (1200)..I am tempted to buy as I love projects but I dont want to get over my head especially as I dont know much about this model or mercedes

MERCEDES BENZ 124 124 Reverse has no power after ATF and fiilter change

First sorry for my bad English. Im from Uruguay (we re spanish speakers). Last month I bought a MB 300TD 91 (124 - automatic). First thing I think to do is renew all fluids and filters change bad hoses stop leaks etc. After that brakes suspension etc. My problem with reverse mode begins after a ATF and filter change. This is my first MB and I have no idea what fluids it carries (brand type). At Service

along with a new pressure control cable and a new transmission mount. This is the proper and only way to rebuild a MB transmission and make it last. Finally since the transmission is out of the car make sure to have the engine rear main seal replaced. This is the best time to get to it. I would stick with genuine MB parts for this expensive job. I wouldnt trust any USA transmission parts in a mercedes.

MERCEDES BENZ 124 124 Planned project (88 300E)... 5-speed conversion turbo LSD... Comment

Ive recently been extended an offer for an 86 300E with a 5-speed transmission for 1000... The body is not in the best of shape so it will merely be a parts car. This will be the starting point for a relatively intensive project for my 88 300E. Heres the plan so far. First of course is the transmission. Seeing as it needs a rebuild I was wondering (since supposedly its a Getrag-built transmission)

on the engine is childs play and costs about 150 in parts The T5 transmission is simple to rebuild and theyre a dime a dozen. And you can do simple upgrades to beef it up a little bit. Rebuild parts for the trans can be anywhere from 100-500 and you can do it yourself You can get a wiring schematic remove any parts of the Mustang engine harness that you dont need and wire it into the stock mercedes

MERCEDES BENZ SLK R170 resoldered K40 now rough idle and now power

ok ever wish you hadnt started something ive had an intermittant prob of lack of power on accelleration occuring few times a week and getting worse. I suspected the K40 soldering problem but also ordered a new MAF. I fitted the new MAF at the weekend and it didnt improve things so I pulled the K40 relay unit out and yes a nice big dry joint in the usual place on the connector to plug A also noticed

Thanks V much Subby thats fantastic ok looking at the diagrams the K40 provides 12v via circuit 87 to the SC clutch and the clutch is released by a feed directly from the N310 via plug F pin 21 Ive measured at the clutch socket and correctly have around 14V when running at pin 1 but when i rev the car the N310 does not appear to be applying 0V via plug F pin 21 checked continuity of the cable back

Okay so with my friends help Ive decided to just replace the water pump by myself instead of dealer who wants ridiculous amounts for it and labor.

MERCEDES BENZ 190 W201 Differential swap out

Hello all I am considering my options to lower the engine speed of a 1987 190D2.5 Turbo its about 2900rpm when going 70mph. I was wondering what differential was in it (i.e. ratio maybe 3.42) and what replacements are available that are drop inbolt in (read no crazy mods). The power off of the line is more than adaquate and I would be willing to accept a little less acceleration for a more comfortable

There are two easy adjustments that may help you become more satisfied with your 190. The vacuum modulator only affects harshnesssmoothness of each shift it cannot change the shift point. That is done by adjusting the length of the bowden cable which can be done under the hood. There is a plastic nut just where the cable terminates at the throttle linkage. Ive seen yellow and green but youll probably

MERCEDES BENZ 124 124 Blower motor shot AC question

My wife drives a 1992 300TE. Since weve owned it (about a year and a half) the heatAC blower has been pretty lack luster. It blows very softly on low and only a little bit more on high (still soft). Pressure remains the same if you put the heat on (EC) or have the AC on (which by the way went earlier this year). So my first question is could it be the blower motor that is causing the poor blowing of

You would need some help to test various things but that is fine we can help. First the ac system is not very complex to diagnose provided you have the relevane information. However it is also not as simple as just a compressor breaking down. More often than less it is not the compressor because the compressor on a MB is quite well protected against self destruction. First the basics The major parts

MERCEDES BENZ 124 124 Sunroof stuck open

I have 1987 300 TDT. Sunroof was working fine didnt notice any problems. It wouldnt open fiddled with the switch a little while driving and it went to the tilt up position. Now it wont close stuck tilted up. I checked the motor by the spare tire . Turned the motor witha 17mm socketed nothing happened. Any suggestions thanks.

Both the tilt and slide are managed by the single cable. To drop the tilt down the cable must pull on the mechanism just as if if were sliding the top back and vice versa. To tilt the top up the cable just pushes the mechanism past the full stop position and the lift arms proceed to tilt up the rear of the panel. You may have a problem with a loose clutch or broken cable or lift arms.

MERCEDES BENZ SLK R170 SLK 230 Starter problem

MERCEDES BENZ 124 124 air pump noise from under the hood - 94 E320

When I start the car cold it makes a sound from under the hood right front side of the engine (airbox area) it sounds like a cheap tire air compressor with nothing hooked up to it (no load) under a minute later it stops making the noise - the noise stops instantly.

MERCEDES BENZ 190 W201 Have auto trans would like 5sp manual

I just recently bought an 1985 190D 2.2l with the auto trans. I would like to find a 5 sp manual tranny for it. My questions are what years and models of trannys will fit and what kind of price should I consider as fair Thank you for any information you can help with.

Here is a list of everything including the obvious things. I do understand you are working with a diesel and some things might be slightly different but Im sure you wont have a problem -Transmission (duh) -Driveshaft (they will be different lengths because the automatic is longer. Also the support bearing will come out with the driveshaft so no need to worry about that) -Rear differential (Im not sure

MERCEDES BENZ 124 124 Transmission oil leaks

I think the most annoying problem Ive had on my 124s is transmission oil leaks. Every car. Well maybe not TE2 the one with the genuine MBZ rebuilt box. And its never been a one step fix for me. The red 260E300E was first and I fought long and hard to stop an annoying leak at the right rear corner. I replaced the o-rings on the kickdown solenoid only to find that the solenoid body had some tiny cracks.

I havent done this but looked into it a few months back when I broke the adjuster on my Bowden cable. Ended up fixing the adjuster with a motorcycle clutch cable adjuster so I didnt have to do it. From what I read you dont need to drop the Trans just the pan. You can unhook and hook the cable up from the valve body this way. Dealer confirmed it when I asked the tech about it while getting an alignment. Sent from AutoGuide.com Free App
